Rated 5 out of 5 by jacobite1 Brilliant
I had gel nails done after I bought this kit so I could test if it works and it does, do not think more than 5 clips are needed as you would not be able to work the gel of if you had clips on the other hand, also did not have the problem with the gel remover bottle it sat on my table fine. I do not often wear gels but my nails are a bit off at the minute so having gel helped and of course the kit took it all off brilliantly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Justjack Could be much better
This is a slight improvement on using bit of foil, but the kit still leaves a lot to be desired.
Firstly the packaging looks very cheap (I wouldn't want to give as a gift). Secondly, why are there only 5 clips?! I understand that it might be fiddly to do both hands at the same time by yourself, but this doubles the time it takes and I would rather try to do both or get someone to help me for a minute to save 20 mins extra waiting time! The clips also feel a bit tight, especially as you have to keep them in for 15-20mins. I had to release them a little now and then to ease the discomfort.
The S-shaped files themselves are ok, although I don't really see the improvement with them being curved. The kit does the job, but could be much better.

I had Jessica gel on my nails. I tried this kit as is cost a bit to get the gel taken off. I sat down and read through the instructions, away I go with it and like magic the gel was lifted. I carried on with the who,e regime. The result being moisturized nails that look great. Thank you, great product.

I treated myself to a gel nail kit about a year ago. I used it about 3 times and gave up as I could never get the gel off cleanly and I always felt like my nails were left brittle, damaged and flawed. Even when going to a salon I don't find that technicians get my nails completely clean. So, I thought this was worth a go. I painted my nails for a wedding using my gel kit. It took four coats of the colour I used so is was a true test of the product!!
You definitely can only do one hand at a time, and if you want a quick removal this might not be for you (although I'm sure that every type of gel will be slightly different when it comes to removal). It took about 40 minutes of "soaking" intermittently removing the clips and using the orange stick before putting the clips back. But, I now have completely clean nails. I always struggle to remove from my right hand as I'm not as dexterous with my left when using the orange stick but I preserved and got there in the end!
Like I say, it was time consuming, but this could be down to the cheap gel materials that I use. I would rather take the time to do it properly.
This might not mean that I use gel kit constantly but, I will certainly be a lot more confident that when I do, I can get it off cleanly with a bit of time & effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by prizeguy Does what it says
This product worked for me. The only thing is I used a very thin lint free wipe which was too thin & dried out very quickly but still got good results so hopefully next time I will use a cotton pad so this shouldn't dry out so quick. The clips stayed on, I had a lovely shine on my nails after I had buffed them. The oil is lovely without being too greasy. Because this is so easy to do I sometimes want to change the colour after a week even though there is nothing wrong with my polish. Can't be without this product now. Very pleased.

I really wanted this kit to work, did it all by the letter and watched demo, foil works much better and the finger devices really hurt and remover ran off quickly. Sadly have returned

This looks like a good product on paper but the nail wipes dry before the polish lifts and the bottle has domed on the bottom so leans to one side, would not recommend, back to using foil again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jeniferlucy So simple
Just took off my shellac nail polish with this kit clips were brilliant so much better than foil had no issue with the polish bottle like the previous review. Left clips on for 15 mins varnish had started to lift and peel used the stick to get it all off easy.
